I don’t understand why one has anything to do with the other? The NCAA has already conceded it’s time for the big programs to form their own league. So, why can’t they leave and keep the conference alignments the same? Why can’t they leave and keep the number of playoff spots in line with what it takes to keep every regular season game important? The politicians and the Courts forced NIL on college football so there’s nothing to be done about that but the big programs can reign in the free agency transfer portal. All of these massive changes aren’t being thought through and as always happens when feel good policies are implemented, the results never match what was intended.Setting aside the NIL for the question.
How would you recommend getting to where Sankey mentioned the other day? A time where we don't have people from Yale football telling SEC schools what they can and can't do...
There are 12 on the rules committee today and only a third represent Power 5 conferences: PAC, B1G, and Big12. But we do have the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference represented (who, by the way, doesn't even receive an automatic bid to March Madness: they're a D2 team.)
